Tropical Forest Update

Regeneration

Just as tropical forests renew themselves, so has ITTO. On 7 December 2011, the International Tropical Timber Agreement 2006 entered into force, ushering in a new era for ITTO. This issue of the TFU, the first to be published after the entry into force of the ITTA 2006, celebrates this new beginning.
